RDi is based on Eclipse. You can develop RPG or Java in RDi. RDi is not
free. Eclipse is free. If you are not already using RDi, I'd use Eclipse
to start with. You do not need a special IDE to write Java programs you
intend to run on IBMi (or connect to IBMi). I've used Eclipse for Java
development for over a decade and recommend it.

Subject: Re: Experienced RPGLE developer to finally learn Java
oh wait... i can't bring myself to buy a book when so much online.
What IDE are other IBMi developers (with rpg backgrounds) using for
an i framework?
Does RDI provide opportunity? Is visualAge just out of the question
